It dramatically unfolds Shamir's controversial decision not to retaliate to Iraq's missile attack in addition to withstanding international pressure from world leaders such as President George H. W. Bush and President Mikhail Gorbachev.
This revealing film includes interviews with key figures such as former Prime Ministers Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert, and discusses Shamir’s clandestine meeting with King Hussein.
